March Madness Pools for 2013
Host your NCAA Tournament Pool the easy way!The NCAA Men's Basketball tournament is arguably the most exciting time of the year for office pools or pools among family and friends. It seems everyone is talking about their brackets, who they picked to go to the Final Four, and who their "Cinderella" team is this year. Many of you enjoy it so much, that you run your own pools. It's a lot of fun … and a lot of work. That's where RunYourPool.com comes in. Host your pool with RunYourPool.com and put our pool management service to work for you.
Types of March Madness Pools
Currently, RunYourPool.com offers three types of NCAA tournament pools:
NCAA Bracket PoolThis is the most popular NCAA Basketball Tournament pool. Players completely fill out the NCAA brackets, predicting the winner of every game. Points are awarded for every game picked correctly, with the winner having the most total points. You may set your own point value for each round of the tournament. (View Bracket Pool FAQs)
Sweet 16 Bracket PoolSweet 16 pools work just like normal bracket pools, except they start with Round 3 of the tournament, when the field has been cut down to 16 teams. This is a great option for those who could not get their pool organized in time for the start of the tournament or who prefer fewer games. (View more Sweet 16 Pool info)
Pick 8 PoolPlayers only pick 8 teams for the entire tournament. Every time a chosen team wins, the player is awarded the number of points equivalent to the team's seed number. (View Pick8 Pool FAQs)
